    Abstract

    Pre-operative pre-assessment has this summer
    been the subject of National Institute for
    Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidance (see
    Box 1), However, in a review of pre-assessment
    clinics, Clinch (1997) states that, before 1990,
    there was little published formal research on preassessment,
    with most accounts being descriptive,
    anecdotal and aimed at sharing the experience
    of organising such services, Box 2 shows the
    traditional pathway for patients requiring elective
    surgery in the UK.
